The First Day of Term

ap-parent-2016-17-_pdfYour child’s first day of term is arranged so that Year 7 are the only students in school until breaktime, then the rest of the school arrive.

Your child will need to arrive on the first day of term in uniform by 8.40am. He/She will need to bring:

  • Money for lunch or a packed lunch. (See section on Lunchtimes – Smart cards will be issued as soon as we have student photos)
  • A bag containing pencil case (Pen, pencil, eraser, ruler, calculator)
  • School Lockers paid for via ‘ParentPay’ on the school website will be allocated throughout the first two weeks. If you are unable to use ParentPay you can bring cash or cheque to the
    pastoral office.

Pupils will not need their PE Kit on the first day.

He/she will go to the Main Hall where the Head of Year will welcome all new students. They will then go to their tutor room to spend the rest of the morning with their tutor.

A number of Year 11 Prefects and Peer Mentors will also spend time with the Year 7 tutor groups and will help them settle in.

They will be given their timetable, planner, essential basic information and shown around the school. You and they will be amazed at how quickly they find their way about!
